Beautiful 1 month old Audrey!
Audrey’s mother contacted me when she was just about 1 month old. She did not realize that newborn portraits are usually booked while still pregnant, or that the best age for those curly, sleepy newborn poses is 6-10 days.
I was disheartened to hear that she had been turned away by several photographers because her baby was “too old”. I could never turn away any family wanting beautiful photographs of their child for that reason! I explained that it was unlikely that Audrey would sleep well enough, or be able to curl up in the newborn poses, but I would still capture some beautiful moments- even if she was awake.
Andrey was a bit fussy and unsettled for the first part of her session. I worked at her pace, and when she finally fell into a deep sleep (surprising us all) I was able to get some amazing shots- posing nearly as well as an under-two-week-old baby.
Here are a few of the best photos from the session.
